How I Know It's Spring

Today at The Thing About Daisies Ashley wrote a post about how she knows it is spring. I've heard a lot of people complaining about it being cold and rainy, but I have to admit, today in northern Indiana, it is probably the most beautiful day we've had in six months. I don't know how warm it got, but our predicted high was over 80°, and the morning weatherman said that would break the previous record.

So, sorry everyone having a crappy day. Come to Indiana, it is beautiful here.

But, how do I know it's spring?

The food.

I love warm weather, because I love warm weather food. The past week I've been going crazy over strawberries. Yesterday while I was grocery shopping, I saw that strawberries were marked down to $1.50 each, so I bought three. It was a rather impulsive buy, and I shouldn't have gotten so many, because I doubt I'll be able to eat all of them before they go bad, but I was just so excited about them being there and looking good.

Today I bought two big containers of blackberries. One reason why produce goes bad in my house is because I don't like to clean it, so it stays in the fridge too long, and goes bad before I can eat it.

I decided that today I needed to cut everything up so that I could get my moneys worth out of my fresh fruit...besides the fact that I wanted to eat it all up right now.

I got out one of my handy bowls with a lid that we got as a wedding present, and filled it up.

I didn't realize how many blackberries I had actually bought.


The color is off on this picture, they really look nice and healthy.
Bring on the grilling! I asked Josh if he would cook out this weekend...I really hope he wants to. :)

What is your favorite warm weather food?
